Waterloo East Theatre presents 

Leonard Bernstein's New York

Music by Leonard Bernstein / Lyrics by Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein

Conceived and arranged by Rob Fisher / Book by Rob Fisher, Sammy Buck and Garth Edwin Sunderland

Leonard Bernstein’s New York receives its European Premier.

This joyous musical revue explores the music of Leonard Bernstein and the city that inspired so much of his life and work. From Bernstein's famous friendships with Comden and Green, Sondheim, Robbins and Copland to his ascendance as one of the great American composers. 

In an evening packed with beloved hits from shows like West Side Story, On the Town, and Wonderful Town. We follow a seasoned New Yorker and a wide-eyed newcomer on their own journey and relationship with the city that never sleeps in this salute to one of America's most beloved composers.

"A thrilling tribute to Bernstein conceived by the conductor, pianist and music-theatre scholar Rob Fisher." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Due to an unforeseen personal matter - not Covid-19 related - and the lack of time now to recast and rehearse the show in time to open next week , we have had no alternative but to make the difficult decision to postpone the production to 2022. All ticket holders will be refunded and we will be in touch when new dates are announced. Apologies for any inconvenience.
